Austin III, right, Commander of the US Central Command (CentCom), before the start of a briefing at MacDill Air Force Base, Fla.  Obama’s military campaign against Islamic State extremists has already crept beyond the narrow parameters he first outlined three months ago.  But military experts both inside and outside of the administration argue that even more may be needed for the mission to succeed, including embedding U.S. ground troops with Iraqi security forces who are on the front line of the fight against the violent militants.

In this Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014 file photo, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, right, shakes hand with Chinese President Xi Jinping as he welcomes him at a hotel in Ahmadabad, India. Xi toasted the birthday of Modi in a quiet dinner earlier this week in Modi’s home state and the two leaders are full of praise for one another, and one another’s countries. Left largely unspoken, though, are the deep worries in India over Chinese maneuvering in the Indian Ocean, where New Delhi’s years of dominance is being chipped away by billions of dollars in aid from Beijing and gargantuan Chinese construction projects.
